Top chef to star at Fish Festival
NEWQUAY Fish Festival is set to haul in a top celebrity chef to celebrate its 10th
Chef Nathan Outlaw will be giving a cookery demonstration at the event on Friday, September 14.
The chef, who has appeared on shows such as BBC’s Great British Menu and Saturday Kitchen, is famed for his fish dishes and supporting the Cornish fishing industry.
He runs his self-titled two Michelin star restaurant, Restaurant Nathan Outlaw in Rock, which was named the best fish restaurant in the Good Food Guide 2011.
Nathan said: “It is my first time at Newquay Fish Festival and I’m really looking forward to being a part of it, especially as Newquay is still a traditional fishing port. It’s a great
opportunity to showcase some of the fantastic Cornish fish we have off our coast and I hope to be able to encourage people to have a go at fish cookery.”
Festival co-ordinator Claire Evans is delighted to have Nathan onboard the event. She said: “It is fabulous Nathan has agreed to come along and support the event to showcase Cornish fishing, which is his whole ethos.
“He will be helping to take the Fish Festival to the next level. It has grown over the last few years and it’s amazing that for the 10th anniversary we will have a celebrity chef there.”
Preparations for the Newquay Fish Festival are well underway. The event, which will be held between Friday, September 14 and Sunday the 16th will have a new look to celebrate 10 years.
Cookery demonstrations will be moved to where the trade stalls were staged previously in a bid to create a piazza area.
Among those already signed up are Headland Hotel chef Sanjay Kumar. The trade stalls will be placed along the quay. A pop up museum showcasing the history of Newquay Harbour will be staged at the end of the quay, staged by Newquay Old Cornwall Society.
A Last Night of the Proms will be staged on the Friday night and a ticket only event will be held on Saturday night.
